Airtable

As mentioned previously, I currently developing an Airtable base to track student data and other teaching resource inventory. The children create year group databases. All of which work very well. I haven't encountered any issues or unsuitability thus far.

Pros

  • Airtable is easy to use. It has an intuitive interface and plenty of video/help support for what is not.
  • It makes not only organizing your data efficient, but connects that data to everyone on your team in one centralized database. I love that multiple people can be editing the same records at the same time, and Airtable captures it all in real time!
  • Easy to link data between tables. This makes a lot of information available to users with just a few keystrokes - which makes the frustration of hunting down information a thing of the past.
  • Really appreciate being able to use Zapier to connect Airtable to several of our other systems that house data - MailChimp, SurveyMonkey, Quickbooks to name a few.
  • Being able to change the data views is one of the bigger fan favorites on our team, whether it is in Grid, Gallery, or Kanban, to grouping and sorting by Field Type. There is something for everyone's needs there.

Cons

  • I think this thing has huge potential for us to manage our photos. We take over 10,000 photos a year and Airtable has the capability of easily loading, tagging and sorting them. It even has history and you could store edited versions of each photo within each original photo's profile. However - the ability to view these photos as thumbnails of different sizes, gallery style, is very limited. So that's a big additional feature I'd like to see, some optimization to use this as a photo management system.
  • If you include numbers into a table, automagically from another table via the rollup or lookup features, then you cannot use those numbers as part of a formula in a subsequent field. This turned out to be a major limiting factor on my using it as a budget manager. (Luckily I came up with a workaround but it makes me add additional columns to the table that add a bit of otherwise unnecessary clutter.)

  • As an admin it would be great to see who is using the VMR. For example, User 1, User 2, User 3 are using VMR A. user 4, User 5, User 6 are using VMR B.
  • Able to lock who joins a VMR for certain period of time or while a meeting is going on. It is a frequent issue that some guest users jump to a VMR in the middle of a meeting by mistake. If you think about a real meeting room, well you can lock the door, put a sign on the door or when someone wants to get in as it gets closer they can hear the room is busy.
  • Auto dial by schedule. We have a meeting every Tuesday at the same time, the same equipment, same participants. It would be great if the system can auto join to a VMR at certain time.
  • Full screen enable as a call starts up. Having an option to automatically go full screen when placing a call.
  • Having a separate window for a presentation is FANTASTIC! It saved us the use of another computer for only that purpose. However, when another user starts presenting, the presentation window goes black. So it has to be closed (to go back to the share environment - video and presentation) and then separate them again. It would be better if that separate presentation window can pick up the change of presenter automatically.
  • Real time call quality. With Icon 600 I can see real time packet loss, bandwidth, Jitter, etc. Having real time information of a call as an admin would help to nail down issues like, is a bandwidth problem? Is it a specific user problem? Is it a site related problem? Some data to justify and support what by eye seems to be the problem. I understand is a very complex technology, but some data would help to improve the environment and make a full use of the Lifesize solution.

We've made a commitment to use LifeSize across all our international offices. Switching to another platform now would be costly, cumbersome, and unnecessary. LifeSize is doing its job well and has been since we started with them ~ 3 years ago.

You certainly need someone to operate the amount of cameras we have. Lots of end users have tried to replace WebEx as well but just doesn't hold up to the feature and functionality.

Since we are an educational institution we not only have scheduled classes which must be available, but we have staff members in a variety of areas ranging from recruiting and admissions to advancement and the President's office who need to connect with students, alumni and other interest groups, often at odd hours. I have not, since using Lifesize had anyone complain of not being able to connect

We chose Lifesize because we are in a consortium with several other small universities. Each university has its own LMS and professors and IT departments each either provide or allow users to use additional tools or programs. Additionally, as our staff members use Lifesize to communicate with those outside our system we must have a tool that is capable of integration with what is being used by our faculty and staff as well as those they interact with in the course of their academic business.

Sometimes, I have to wait a bit longer but I'm on a low priced option so I understand why. Generally, they're able to provide me solutions to my problems as long as I'm not in a rush.

Lifesize support is one
of the best features in this kind of product. With other products we usually
need to search and find solutions in public forums.
We have a considerable size installation in
countries where communications are not as good as needed, but with the help of Lifesize support
team we were able to easily make the better configurations in
order to use the maximum of the available network.Everytime we have a problem with a device there is allways someone on the support team available to help us. Great Support Service!

Alternatives Considered

I have mostly set up and helped architect custom database solutions in a proprietary software, as compares directly to Airtable. I have set up and used JIRA Software extensively, and several Marketing Automation systems, and set up Oncontact CRM, and used DAM systems, and Basecamp project management. All in all setting up databases and introducing them to organizations is one of my primary skills and I have several years experience doing this within an organization and as a consultant for other organizations. This is why I love Airtable so much - I have never seen something so lightweight, so inexpensive, and so powerful. Pound for pound it whips any system I have ever used. When I think back to all the custom database solutions I've implemented, and other processes I've managed and consulted on within organizations, I can't help but wonder how many of them would have vastly better off with a simple Airtable implementation.

Lifesize has expanded its cloud video conferencing and I foresee it going that direction instead of room to room hardware. We currently have no plan to add or upgrade any of our in room systems but having the ability to connect room to cloud or cloud to cloud is an excellent feature from Lifesize.
